Yes, Japanese Cartoon is known as Anime.

Gundam is one of the most creative anime's on the planet.

^Nice wallpaper! :)

Edit: If people want to have that wallpaper, open the image in a new Tab and remove the "m" right before the extension.

Translated: "MS Gundam The Origin" -TV Anime- is scheduled to air in 2014"

Good to know that it's going to be a full series! :D Though it's a bummer that some of the original cast wont be able to reprise their roles.

After 34 years, the original voices would be hard to work with, don't you think? :p

^Most of them reprised their rolls on "Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam: A New Translation". But for instance, the voice for Sayla Mass passed away. Bright's original voice actor Hirotaka Suzuoki performed his last voicing role on Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam: III Love is the Pulse of the Stars.

Also, some development:

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin Set for 2014!?
According to Anime News Network:
ANN confirmed that the March issue of Gundam Ace magazine does not state that the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin anime will air in 2014. The magazine's August 2011 issue did state that an anime project of Yoshikazu Yasuhiko's Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin manga would be launching.

Earlier this week, an image began circulating online that claimed that the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin TV anime is scheduled to air in 2014. The image is the poster illustration that Yasuhiko created for the 1981 film Mobile Suit Gundam II: Soldiers of Sorrow, except with text added.

Another image began circulating online this week, but its text simply says: "Mobile Suit Gundam, the first TV anime in the Gundam franchise which debuted in 1979 — Now we will go back to the origin in 2014 when it will be the 35-year anniversary!"

On Friday, producer Masakazu Ogawa announced on the official Twitter account for Mobile Suit Gundam AGE that production on a new project featuring the characters Asemu Asuno and Zeheart Galette has "finally" been green-lit. Ogawa did not specify what kind of project it is, or even if it is anime.

In light of the announcement, designer Michinori Chiba drew a new sketch on a sheet with Japanese animation registration holes.

Ogawa had mused in September about a possible story focusing on the characters' days as students. In November 2012, Ogawa and Chiba released a rough sketch to the official Twitter account that was used to introduce the characters for a possible new project.
In the AGE anime, Asemu was the main character of the second generation with Zeheart as his antagonist. The television series premiered in October of 2011, and it ended on September 23, 2012, shortly before Ogawa mentioned the tentative plans.

^That's pretty stupid to be honest :/ The main story has already ended and now they're going to flesh out part of that story, which isn't even an interesting part? I was hoping that they where going to create some original work again. But this is honestly a stupid idea.
